Why merino wool?

The skin is the largest organ in our bodies. It is our protective layer, it regulates our body temperature and its thousands of nerve endings is quite literally how we feel the world around us. That is why a merino base layer might be the most important of all performance garments. Much like the skin, it has thermoregulating qualities, meaning that it helps to provide warmth when you need it but it also helps to cool you down if you get overheated. 

  • Effective vapor and moisture management
  • Naturally antibacterial and odor free
  • Mechanical stretch without stretch fibers
  • Next-to-skin comfort thanks to super fine wool

How we work with naturals

Closing the loop

By keeping the wool pure without blending in synthetics we preserve the natural qualities of the wool and also achieve a fully circular product. These worn out base layers were composted in our garment compost at Rosendal Gardens in Stockholm.

Natural fibers can return to nature as long as they are not blended or treated with synthetics or treated with hazardous chemicals.
